Some time back when I was walking the ridge of hills from Raghtin Beg to Urris, in addition to the views across to Slieve Snaght (my objective for the next day), I became very much aware of the nearer neighbours of Dunaff Hill (Head) and Bulbin. Previously I had only seen Bulbin and its sharp peak from afar but now it was across the valley just waiting to be climbed. Although it took some time to get around to it I eventually made it back to Inishowen. I started my walk at C358435 B (Addeville), a narrow country road, and walked SW. The road curved around to the SW side of the hill. At approximately C349423 C, where a stream comes down the hillside I headed SE up the slope to the ridge and then turned left up to the summit at 494m. The top has a memorial already photographed and commented upon by gerrym, and there is also a small tarn. There are fine views W from Raghtin More to the Gap of Mamore and the Urris ridge beyond, while to the SE is the bulk of Slieve Snaght, the highest mountain in Inishowen. From the top I descended NE around the cliffs to my left and once past them NNW to a gate and my starting point. Walking time was about 1hr 45mins. I combined this walk with with a walk over nearby Dunaff Hill. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/475/comment/4207/
